Microsoft opens officially the Cloud Computing era


“Run your business, not your infrastructure”, “Cloud is changing everything” and “We are all in [Cloud Computing]” are some of the key slogans of the Worldwide Partner Conference 2010, ended some days ago in Washington D.C. with more than 14 000 attendees from all over the world. This edition will be remembered as a milestone in Cloud Computing. BEDIN Shop Systems, represented by President and CEO Wladimiro Bedin, received high visibility in what will be remembered as an historic date in Microsoft evolution.

Wladimiro Bedin released also a video interview and attended meetings with international Retail analysts, receiving a strong interest on the new scenarios opened by Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and thus by “real” Cloud Computing, in POS, In-Store and in general on Retail systems.
